I made these hand bags a while back to sell at a craft show. It was not a very good venue or maybe the bags were not attractive enough but they did not sell. So I have kept them hanging in my closet, until this week. I am using one bag for each of my girls for outings, one has cloths for, “little accidents” and the other has a diaper, and wipes. I am happy to use them or I would have to loose them we can’t keep everything can we?
This one is an extra for the car, my plan for when I forget to plan. It happens regularly enough that it too often is the only plan. I also wanted to show you what can be made with all your husbands ties stashed in the closet. It is a pettily task making straps for hand bags but with an man’s tie…. it’s a cinch. Be sure to zig-zag down the length of the tie to keep it together and the zig-zag stitch allowes for some stretch.
What are your tricks to keep it all together when you are out and about. I look at other mom’s in complete envy when they have everything they need and what I need. So cool calm and collected they are. Not me by the time I have the kids in the car I’ve worn my deodorant out and I just put it on at the door before I left the house!! I put my biggest game face on when I arrive to my destination, walk slowly to the door in an attempt to decelerate my racing mind, inhale deeply, as by now I am panting, and convince my body to stop sweating… “What a great day it is today?” …. ” coffee?” my hostess asks. “Atavan or brandy would do me fine” I think, but instead I reply, “coffee sounds great!” So what do you do to make it look so simple? …. please tell.
Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s give away post. It would be a great baby gift if you don’t have a baby to use it. My next give away will be not baby related.
